KHOU - 17 states call on Congress to abandon concealed carry gun law

Postby Steve5115 » Mon Oct 23, 2017 2:00 pm

NEW YORK (AP) — Democratic attorneys general from 17 states are calling on Congress to abandon legislation backed by the National Rifle Association that would allow concealed-carry gun permits issued in one state to be valid in all states.

The Democratic attorney generals argue that concealed-carry reciprocity would empower gun traffickers, terrorists and other criminals. And they say it would help criminals avoid permit requirements altogether should they assert residence in one of the 12 states that allow gun owners to carry a concealed weapon without a permit.


Criminals avoid permit requirements today by ignoring the law! :banghead:

Hmm, 17 AGs oppose the law. That means 33 AGs are not opposed to it, a 2 to 1 margin. I guess it is time for the bill to pass if that is the measure.

Because, you know, permitting requirements slows down gun traffickers now...

LEOSA should be amended to give out of state LTC the same consideration as out of state LEO. After all, Texas LTC gun down fewer innocent people than NYPD.

Why does illogic appeal to those knuckle heads?

Disarming law abiding, armed citizens who are then put completely at the mercy of criminals who are armed isn't logical.

How many congress types are protected by armed security?

Shouldn't they work at disarming them first given they presumably have immediate control over them...

I'm shocked. Shocked.

There's more than 3 states where the Attorney-General is still a democrat?

So let's apply the same logic they are appying.

Thye can do as they like, but in the spirit of reciprocity, folks with drivers licenses from those 17 States cannot drive in Texas (or the other States wanting reciprocity) and we'll call it good.

y'all are still comparing it to DL's. Driving laws are pretty much the same in every state. There are a few differences, and you have to know them. In some states you can't U turn unless there is a sign saying you can, whereas in other states you can unless there is a sign saying you can't. You have to know this stuff or you will get a ticket. A ticket is different than losing your carry rights. Nat Rec won't change the laws. New York isn't going to allow Texans to carry guns into their state, it's not going to happen. Neither is NJ, or Maryland or CA....Not without major law changes. I simply don't understand why people want this.

To me it's about being able to a gun into states like New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont. Right now a can't get there from here.

My $0.02

National CC reciprocity won't happen anytime soon. With all the obstruction in DC, I just don't see it. I could be wrong, and would like to be. Now, if we can use the reciprocity as the red herring to get the Hearing Protection Act passed, I'd be a happy camper. NFA laws for cans are ridiculous and need to go away now!

As if I crossed the state line I would be criminal even when I have committed no offense and I have a squeaky clean record.
